RESULTS - Round of 512

(122) 1982 UCLA - 30
(634) 1994 Tennessee - 24
QB Tom Ramsey threw for 256 yards and 3 touchdowns for the Bruins as they fought off a second half comeback attempt by freshman QB Peyton Manning. After a rough first half that saw the Vols down 20-0 at halftime, Manning got things kick started in the second half by firing to WR Joey Kent early and often. But the Vols came up short when linebacker Blanchard Montgomery stopped James Stewart on 4th and short near midfield with 1:31 to play.

(378) 1984 USC - 13
(135) 1981 Miami - 18
Howard Schnellenberger's Miami defense held Ted Tollner's USC offense to just 154 yards and scored just enough points to advance past the third round. USC tailback Fred Crutcher only managed 53 yards. For Miami, quarterback Jim Kelly had a mediocre day throwing the ball (12-of-25 for 169 yards), but his touchdown pass to Mike Rodrigue was all the 'Canes needed.

(250) 1982 Clemson - 20
(263) 1992 Syracuse - 19
Clemson got off to a very slow start, but rallied late to beat Paul Pasqualoni's Syracuse Orangemen. Marvin Graves threw for 143 yards and rushed for 43 yards in the first half alone as Syracuse compiled a 17-3 halftime lead against a solid Clemson defense. The Tiger offense got going in the second half, though, with Cliff Austin and Chuck McSwain leading the way on the ground. When safety Terry Kinard picked off a pass from Graves and took it 54 yards down to the 4 yard line with just over 2 minutes remaining, it set up the game winning touchdown plunge by McSwain.

(506) 1983 Iowa - 13
(7) 1987 Miami - 28
Jimmy Johnson's Miami defense did a number on Chuck Long and the Iowa offense. Defensive ends Daniel Stubbs and Bill Hawkins led the charge on Long, with the Hurricanes piling up 7 sacks as a team. Meanwhile Michael Irvin caught two touchdown passes and Cleveland Gary added another as Miami cruised into the bracket semifinals.
